ALTICE.--Wm. H. Altice, an old and respected citizen, died at his home in Colegrove, Tuesday evening, March 6th, after a lingering illness. He was born in Franklin County, Virginia, May 5th, 1812, where he spent the early years of his life and learned his trade, that of blacksmithing. He was united in marriage to Catherine H. Johnson, of the same county, June 27, 1839. During the excitement in 1861 he moved to Burning Springs, West Virginia, to Butler County, Pennsylvania, in 1873 and to Colegrove in 1880. He followed his trade all his life up to about 10 years ago, when he closed his shop and retired from active business. He is survived by his widow, now in her 82nd year, and four sons, Rev. M. D. M. Altice, of Warsaw, New York, a member of Erie Annual Conference of the United Brethren in Christ Church; Samuel H. Altice, of Jamestown, New York; S. Frank Altice and Charles B. Altice of St. Marys, West Virginia. "Uncle" Altice, as he was familiarly known alike to the old and young was of a quiet, home-loving disposition, a kind husband and father, a good neighbor, and a true friend to all who knew him. The children especially looked upon him as their friend and to them he always seemed greatly attached. His funeral was held at 2 p.m. Friday, March 3rd from the Union Church at Colegrove, and was largely attended by relatives and friends. Services were conducted by the Rev. W. F. Tubbs, after which his body was laid to rest in the church cemetery.
